Chronic conditions now dominate healthcare, both in terms of expenditures and effects on patient quality of life.1 Over half of Americans have at least one diagnosed chronic condition.1 When considering just cardiometabolic syndrome, 57.5% of Americans are estimated to have prediabetes, undiagnosed diabetes, or diabetes.2 Rates of metabolic syndrome continue to rise.2
Treating this epidemic of chronic illness requires a shift in focus. A systems-based approach can yield better outcomes and quality of life for patients.3,4 To prevent and treat these conditions, Functional Medicine’s established tools and systems-based approach offers enormous benefits.
This interactive, online course provides an overview of Functional Medicine through the lens of a cardiometabolic case. With an emphasis on treating underlying causes, advanced physical exam techniques, and ready-to-use intake, assessment, and patient education tools, this course equips clinicians with the tools to immediately personalize prevention and treatment plans.
In just six hours, this interactive course will reveal new considerations for personalizing treatment of cardiometabolic conditions.
Once purchased, you will have 60 days to complete the course in your IFM account.
